  • We have been enjoying breakfast at the Lodge every time we come to ski. Our server Tammy is the best! Fantastic service and true southern hospitality. Breakfast is the best! Good portions. You won't leave hungry! We have ordered off the menu and also enjoyed the breakfast buffet. You will not regret partaking of their food. Eating here is a highlight of our annual trip.

Whoever stated in one of the reviews that you have to hike a lot to get to the chair lift hasn't been to a lot of the resorts in the mid Atlantic . The distance at wisp from ticket counter to lift an is longer, although the terrain is less steep.
